THE FULL PARTICIPATION MOVEMENT

The Full Participation Movement is actively challenging the dynamics of exclusion by fostering a cross-community conversation that centers human rights and lived experience. The Movement is grounded in understanding longstanding connections between enslavement in the United States, violence, racialized exclusion, and punishment, and works to explore new ways to fully engage with the patterns in our history and to form institutions that support a humanizing culture that moves beyond punitive, violent and repressive attitudes employed to subordinate and dominate others.

OUR SECOND ANNUAL CONFERENCE

This year, the Full Participation Movement is partnering with ASALH’s 400 Years of Perseverance to bring together a one-of-a-kind conference and arts festival that highlights the human rights framework to advance our understanding of the intersection between punishment and race in the United States over the past 400 years.

ART AND EXPRESSION AROUND FULL PARTICIPATION

In October of 2018, we held our first conference and arts festival, which examined the exclusions created by the punishment system, race and other systems of hierarchy and their many expressions. Following this conference and the dialogue that it inspired, we remain committed to creating spaces to share information and experiences that allow all community members to engage.
